*ridiculously old photo of my family

Hi there!! My name is Faith, I am a wife and mom to five kids - this is my family: Daniel (aka "The Hubs") Beth, Emma, Katie-Abigail, Josiah, Eli & Grayson. I'm a writer, photographer & Jesus follower living in the Augusta, GA area.

I was homeschooled K-12 (primarily by the classical method) I've been married since 2001, my kids range in ages from 15 to 1 and my school-aged kiddos are currently in public school & the Georgia Cyber Academy.

I've been blogging on and off since 2005 but I've been writing and taking pictures since I was a little girl, scribbling in notebooks and borrowing my parents camera to photograph tortoises and peacocks at the Atlanta Zoo.  When I was sixteen a friend of mine let me borrow his film SLR, it was nothing fancy so I had to learn to shoot manually right away. I enjoyed photographing my siblings, kids I babysat, flowers, clouds and anything and everything else. When my daughter was born and I found myself photographing her constantly and switched from film to digital. My husband bought me my first digital SLR in 2007.  I started teaching photography classes in 2010 since then I've written four classes. Since having a baby I primarily offer mentoring sessions rather than group classes. You can also purchase the tutorials for download.

My blog has slowly been migrating from a photography blog towards a more devotional journal, back to where I started as a blogger.  I'm writing a series called 100 mornings and other ramblings. I'm currently participating in the #write31days challenge. I co-lead a ladies Bible study at my church, which has been an amazing experience for me. My co-leader has become my best girlfriend, and co-author of a Bible Study called "Along the Way", the ladies in my group are such a heart-warming example to me of what community is supposed to be. On this blog you'll find thoughts on faith, motherhood and photography. Along with the occasional recipe, just because I can't help myself.
